1.Carmelgiri Provincial House Adimaly
(Stella Maris Convent) (1982)
Adimali is one of the biggest cities of High-range. Though it was a place of high population there were no catholic institutions. In order to give a safe residence for working women of city and to act as an inter-station to other convents of high-range, CMC started a convent there on 10th April 1982 with a nursery school and a hostel, as in the vision of our founder fathers. 18th June 1987 witnessed the birthday of Stellamaris College and Sr. Annie Paul was the first principal. In the principal-ship of Mother Robert a computer Academy was begun. In 1984 Adimaly became a parish and had a parish church of their own.
In 2002, when Idukki province was formed Stellamaris became the provincial house. Now Carmelgiri province turns around this mother house. The harvest is rich, but the labourers, few. Formation of the new province was an urgent need in this scenario for a fruitful and more effective mission. The Diocese of Idukki, which is spread in the entire Idukki District, is certainly a boundless and vast field. We gather the harvest here under the spiritual guidance and paternal care of our Bishop His Excellency Mar.Mathew Anikuzhikattil. We consider Evangelization through Faith Formation as our prior concern.
